Matt originally joined Greycourt’s Portland, Oregon office to run alternative asset research before being promoted to head of research. Matt’s career began on the sell-side as an equity research analyst at Goldman Sachs, having joined the firm shortly after graduation from college. He was promoted to associate analyst after a year at the firm, and had sole coverage of several retailing sectors. Following the firm’s IPO, he left with the managing director who ran his group to start Uncommon Goods, a specialty retailer that sells its products via catalog and the web. After helping to establish the operations side of that business, Matt began a career on the buy-side, initially as an analyst covering consumer and retailing companies for Andor Capital Management, a large equity long/short hedge fund based in Manhattan, and later at Viking Global Investors in Greenwich, CT, also a long/short hedge fund. After his first two years at Viking, Matt was given the responsibility of solely managing a consumer sector portfolio for Viking.
